The Mueller Redactions

Barr: "Okay, any other ideas?"

Miller: "We could replace all the consonants with emojis."

Barr: "Good. Very good."

Bannon: "Ooh-ooh! I know! We could print it in black ink on black paper. That'd be so kewl!"

Barr: "Not bad. Anyone else?"

Mnuchin: "How about we print it using micro-type, upside-down and backwards? In Romanian. On burlap."

Trump: "Or we could draw pictures of Adam Schiff on the cover and call him a smelly poo-poo-head!"

Barr: "Ivanka! We're a little busy here! Could you come get your father?"


Bill Barr says he'll send the redacted Mueller Report to Congress by mid-April.

Wait. Wait-wait-wait-wait-wait-waaaaaait!

It took Barr 36 hours to read the whole report and make a final decision about its contents but it's going to take two-three weeks to edit out the "sensitive parts"?




Generic Democratic candidate ad:

"Hello. Republicans tried to cut funding for the Special Olympics. Three years in a row.

Let me say that again: The Republicans tried to cut funding for the Special Olympics three years in a row.

Please vote Democrat in 2020. Thank you."


Kurt Vonnegut wrote the following over 50 years ago in his book "Slaughterhouse Five". This helps explain the t-Rumps and the Louis Gohmerts of this world.

“America is the wealthiest nation on Earth, but its people are mainly poor, and poor Americans are urged to hate themselves. To quote the American humorist Kin Hubbard, 'It ain’t no disgrace to be poor, but it might as well be.' It is in fact a crime for an American to be poor, even though America is a nation of poor. Every other nation has folk traditions of men who were poor but extremely wise and virtuous, and therefore more estimable than anyone with power and gold. No such tales are told by the American poor. They mock themselves and glorify their betters. The meanest eating or drinking establishment, owned by a man who is himself poor, is very likely to have a sign on its wall asking this cruel question: 'if you’re so smart, why ain’t you rich?' There will also be an American flag no larger than a child’s hand – glued to a lollipop stick and flying from the cash register.

Americans, like human beings everywhere, believe many things that are obviously untrue. Their most destructive untruth is that it is very easy for any American to make money. They will not acknowledge how in fact hard money is to come by, and, therefore, those who have no money blame and blame and blame themselves. This inward blame has been a treasure for the rich and powerful, who have had to do less for their poor, publicly and privately, than any other ruling class since, say Napoleonic times. Many novelties have come from America. The most startling of these, a thing without precedent, is a mass of undignified poor. They do not love one another because they do not love themselves."


And finally: Adam Schiff, you totally rock!
